My dogs love it when I cook. Ha, ha! I hope my husband and kids do too. But my dogs really love it when I cook. They are my faithful assistants from start to finish. Endlessly watching the floor for every little crumb or morsel that could possibly fall from the counter so they can help me “clean” things up. Sometimes it gets annoying when I take the food out of the oven since they are hovering around me like Hyenas. But, overall, I’ll take their furry little (or not so little) butts planted on my kitchen throw rugs (so they won’t slide on the tile) any day!
I recently did a photo shoot for a column that I started writing for a local publication. Before the photos, though, must come the food. Bacon Wrapped Meatballs and Chicken Drumsticks, were just a few of the recipes I was making on this particular day. After the photo shoot, Neiko, my Siberian Husky helped clean up the baking sheet I used. He really liked the Bacon Wrapped Meatballs leftovers. And, YES, I washed and sterilized it in the dishwasher afterwards. This picture of him was just too cute not to share.
Under normal circumstances, Neiko likes to spend most of his day lounging around in his dog crate (it’s his cave), but when he hears me start to work in the kitchen, he comes running.
